You have successfully developed and deployed your microservices architecture, but you find that managing communication between your services and containers is becoming more complex and clumsy as you scale. This talk will begin with a definition of “service mesh” and what potential roles it can play in your microservices architecture. We’ll explore the pros and cons of the following popular service mesh implementations: Istio, Linkerd, Conduit. I’ll touch on the differences in the ease of implementation, integration with existing monitoring solutions, traffic flow, and service-to-service authentication. After this talk, you will be able to make an informed decision on the best service mesh architecture to implement in your environment.
